My bowl of baby/young adult lithops is getting slightly more diverse. One of the seedlings (the pale gray/peach colored one at the bottom) looks a bit like a conophytum because of the fused, short split and spherical shape.
All of the Faucaria seedlings are doing well after the transplant.
The second leaf pairs have already outgrown the first. I hope they develop their first teeth soon!
A little extra water and less sunlight did wonders. They’re still far from looking like adult peyote, but I hope they catch up soon.
The 4 seedlings I have left are slightly stressed, but at least 3 of them are hanging in there.
The disaster batch will not give in!
Not sure if the black spines are supposed to be there, though.
I finally had the chance to correct the stretched old lithops I bought last summer. Most of my lithops (even the ones that have already split this winter) have started splitting again because of the typical Danish spring weather. They all think we’re heading towards winter.
This means I can’t water any of them, not even the smallest ones, until fall comes around in ~6 months..
The Monilaria seedlings are growing so quickly!
I love the sparkly, bubbly cells on the leaves.
The true “body” is slowly pushing its way out of the cotyledons.
I may have been a bit too generous with the amount of sun they’ve been getting, but at least they’re not stretching.
Turns out they were stunted (too much light) and in need of a few deep waterings, but they’re slowly recovering from last week’s crisis.
The fluff/spines on top of a few of the seedlings is spreading and covering a larger area, which means they’ve started growing again.
The roots are massive compared to the size of the leaves. They were already pretty tangled in the little plastic cup, so it was about time I moved them to their permanent homes.
Just spent a few hours in the sun with my Bear Paws (Cotyledon Tomentosa). They’re happier than they’ve ever been, now that the weather lets them stay outside in my little greenhouse.
